Feminist theme at FNC2019 ; films & discussions.
Looking back at how far we’ve come... but also how far we still need to go: it would be unthinkable to put together any feminist film program without paying tribute to the pioneers whose struggles paved the way for women directors today. In film and video, from drama to experimentation, humour to horror, sometimes singing, and never anything less than inventive and militant, these wo- men kicked down the door to an unprecedented chapter in the history of cinema. Let’s celebrate their achievement though these documentaries, anniversaries and restored cuts.
